Leon Chaitow presents a method of effective pain control for use by those in the healing professions – acupuncturists, surgeons, general practitioners, osteopaths, chiropractors, physiotherapists, and trained nurses – as an adjunct to their normal courses of therapy. Included are sections on:
- How acupuncture works
- How and when to use acupuncture
- Acupuncture for pain relief
- Auricular (ear) acupuncture

The author also provides a complete formulary for the treatment of pain in every part of the body. Now widely acknowledged by mainstream health care professionals, acupuncture can offer a much needed alternative for dealing with the cause of discomfort and disease.
